The Department of Zoology and Entomology is celebrating its 100th year of existence and several local charity outreach projects will be incorporated into the activities associated with the celebrations during 2012.

The first project, the Amigo Project in partnership with 4Claws, is aiming to provide housing for 100 dogs in rural settlements around Bloemfontein. The first leg of the project took place on Saturday 19 May 2012, with 25 kennels distributed in the Phase 3.

In addition to housing, food, feeding bowls, collars, leashes and blankets were also handed out to the local residents.
